What materials did you use? This is mostly North Ronaldsay Wool from the Orkney Islands in Great Britain. It is a lovely wool fiber that spins so easily.

lovely spin and what an interesting fiber!! i've never worked with this type of wool - how did you like it??

Hi Dru! Thank you very much! I really enjoyed working with the North Ronaldsey fiber - when you see my skein posted, you'll see that I started out with other colored fibers - but when I finally used the Ronaldsey, things went better for me! :) it's very soft but strong... I'm very intrigued by this breed of sheep that basically lives on seaweed... Thank you very much, also, to Debbyknits!

Wow, where did you get your hands on it? Is that it's natural color? So beautiful and you have done such a lovely even yarn.

Hello, Jessica! Yes- it is such a lovely fiber to work with! We found it on Etsy at a shop called HillTopCloud - but we also googled North Ronaldsey and found a lady named Jane there who has North Ronaldsey sheep and sells the fiber and yarn if you email her ... thank you, also, for your kind words about the yarn , and your encouragement! All the best to you!
